I’m behind on posting recipes. I have been cooking up a storm lately, and sometimes when that happens, I’m so into the food that all I have time to do is snap an Instagram photo before I devour my creations. I was actually feeling a little bad about it…
But then last week, Huffington Post named me in an article, “Ten Foodie Feeds I’m Ready to Devour.” I was named along with some truly talented people that I look up to and try to emulate, so if that is my 15 minutes of internet fame for my life, I’ll take it and be grateful!
I have been trying to curate a really good instagram feed. It only takes a few extra steps to make a good instagram post that looks delicious and beautiful at the same time, while telling a little bit of a story and best of all, that honors the food. There are plenty of people that snap a pic of what they are eating, and even though it may be wonderful… it doesn’t look appetizing at all. They post too often, in all sorts of artificial lighting, with bad pre-set instagram filters. I used to be one of those people, and while it was sort of fun to take a picture of everything I ate, I learned that not everything needs to be shared. Instead, only share the best, in natural light, with a little bit of styling, and keep it simple.
I want my Instagram feed to look like a magazine, and since I have spent this time and effort to make that happen, I’m going to share a series of recipes using just those photos to present them because I don’t have the time to re-cook, style and photograph them with my DSLR Fancy Camera. Sorry, but I’m too busy cooking more food for me and my husband, and I think you will still love these dishes, even if I don’t do a full photo shoot. ?
